If the battery is old or no good the idle air control will search for the proper idle so either a bad battery or idle air control solenoid .

02 caravan will start and stay running as long as my foot is on the gas but as soon as i take my foot off the gas it dies


using a digital volt ohm meter test the throttle position sensor. if it has a dead spot at idle position it will stall. also if the throttle plate is dirty it can cause a stall at idle and all you have to do is clean it.

It starts and will only stay running if I keep my foot on the gas. As soon as I let off the car dies.


sounds like idle control valve. allows air to get into the motor if the throttle body is closed. aka your foot off the gas pedal. sometimes you can try to clean them, but most times that doesn't work.

The car starts but dies as soon as you put your foot on the accelerater and then won't start again. The battery is fine and it's not the timing belt any suggestions please?


Sound like fuel problem,Vehicle needs a set amount of pressure to spay out of the injectors,this atomization ensure proper comustion,If it was MAF(mass air flow) obviously you would be able to restart,but would complain about hesitation,When you step on the gas you apply a load on the engine and a good working fuel pump ensure it meets that load3_17_2012_7_10_37_pm.jpg

Car turns over then stalls.


try cleaning the throttle body (use an old toothbrush and some carb cleaner) and disconnect battery for a few minutes. If that doesnt help, you may need to replace the IAC valve. (idle air control)
